, john hickenlooper. thank you for joining us today. i think that things are so fresh here in connecticut, but you have been dealing for several months with the aftermath of what happened in aurora. i wonder if you have -- if i am misinterpreting you or interpreting you correctly that maybe you have some slight evolution on what ought to be done in terms of laws involving guns or ammunitions. >> first, let me just say that, the heart of every person in colorado goes out to every person in connecticut. watching governor malloy navigate, and i think done a remarkable job, but we would -- you know, our hearts are breaking there for them. we know exactly how they feel. we've been collecting and even as they struggle to process this we've had that distance since the shooting in aurora. i've really tried to look at what are the things that could make a difference, and how should we begin this conversation? things like high capacity magazin magazines certainly have -- that comes up again and again and again. the expanding background checks to make sure that guns don't end up in the wrong people'

forward. >> and there you have it. colorado governor john hickenlooper not feeling so chill about his state's voter approved decriminalization of marijuana. coloradans ad as you may recall voted last month to amend their state constitution to legalized use of small amounts of marijuana. and this week governor hickenlooper sort of reluctantly signed the paperwork that gets sba that into the state constitution. he also signed an executive order setting up a task force to figure out how to implement the new law, how, for example, the state will regulate the new pot market. the great state of colorado seen here enjoying their drug of choice on the steps of the state capitol building are of course not waiting around for the details to be ironed out. but the details are really pretty important. apart from the state of colorado figuring out how to regulate its newly constitutional right to smoke a bowl, there is the not so small matter of federal law. marijuana use may be well be enshrined in the colorado constitution as of this week. it's still not legal in the eyes of the federal governmen

level. not forcing localities to do that but prior to becoming governor, mayor hickenlooper was able to consolidate in the metro denver region our fire departments and our pieces of our police departments and pieces of our road improvement. and so really saying to our local municipalities and one of the first executive orders we did was no unfunded mandates to the municipalities. so we're doing our part of not trying to pass on additional costs. but you have to do your part of really trying to control your costs and think about working with your neighbors at the same time. because we think our municipalities are in serious trouble. the last thing that we had really been doing is we have had over the last two years a 22.7% increase in personal income. we believe a great deal of that is one-time money. so we've been working with our legislature. we've gone from 0% reserves in 2011 in colorado to 8% reserves overall in our budget of 5% unrestricted reserve as a state. and really working with our legislature that what we see as one-time money must only be spent on one-time costs. and we
